Beat Your Drum

  • Performance

Did you know if you’ve got a heartbeat, you’ve got rhythm? Beat Your Drum brings together great rhythm makers from Ireland and around the world to lead short, fun, online workshops so you too can become a drummer.

Kicking off on May 4th, every Monday, there will be a new workshop to try, exploring a new type of drumming. You don’t even need your own drum and we’ll be showing you how to make brilliant rhythm from things you can find in your kitchen!

Pick a workshop (all less than 15 minutes long), film yourself playing with our tutor at the end and send us your video to be part of our epic drumming film which will be broadcast around the world on June 12th as part of Cruinniú na nÓg – the world’s only national day of creativity for children and young people.

Pick and mix between Irish, African, Indian, Brazilian, Native American and body percussion or go global and have a go at all the workshops, then post your responses.

You can do the workshops alone, with friends, parents, sisters and brothers or even with your class or school band.

Whether you’re practicing with your school band or at home with buckets and bins, there is a way for everyone to take part – in one of the workshops, all you need is your voice!

Just remember; if you can walk you can dance, if you can talk you can sing and if you’ve got a heartbeat…you’ve got rhythm!

Check our Facebook page for the Creative Call to Action. It shows behind the scenes footage as well as the event list of workshops available.
